    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the leeks, potatoes, milk, and 2 cups water in a 4-quart pot.
    2. 2
      Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, reduce the heat to medium low, and simmer until a potato slice falls apart when you poke it with a fork, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the cream, and let cool briefly.
    3. 3
      Purée the soup with an immersion blender.
    4. 4
      Strain the puréed soup. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally to prevent a skin, and then refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
    5. 5
      Before serving, thin the soup with water or milk if necessary—it should be the consistency of heavy cream. Serve cold, and garnish with chives.
